Once the trainers let their presence be known by calling out their Pokemon, the ground began to rumble once more. The massive, towering Abomasnow thumped its way out of the cave once more, looking amused that these trainers had returned after fleeing. A few orbs rained down around it and went off with loud pops, causing trainers and Pokemon to back up once more before they started their attack. The snow and wind whipped up around Abomasnow, and its Snow Warning intensified the hailstorm.

Rorik’s Volg roared and raised its stats with Dragon Dance, and the call rallied the other Pokemon into action as well. Isaac’s Incineroar Morgana took a moment to Bulk Up and flex his muscles to prepare himself for what they were about to face. Little Blaze crowed and Focused his Energy. He then heightened his speed with Double Team, running circles around the other Pokémon to prepare himself. Before anyone else could move, Gary’s Stantler Rena leapt to the front of the group, anticipating what Abomasnow would do next. The Abomasnow stared her down, then threw its head back. Rena declared she was going first, and was able to use Skull Bash instead of Abomasnow. Her strong horns hit the Abomasnow and caught it off guard. She Bounced into the air, and the Abomasnow’s eyes followed her as she practically flew high above its head. It held up a giant arm to shield itself as Rena’s strong hooves landed. She jumped off and fell hard on the ground, slipping a bit on the ice. The Stantler lowered its head and ran forward to strike Abomasnow with Megahorn. Her horns made a loud clack as they hit Abomasnow’s icy fur, and it roars angrily in response. It closes its eyes and a strange aura surrounds it as it increases its strength with Growth. It seems to be aware that many more attacks will be coming, and it definitely is going to retaliate. The aura around it faded and the trainers could see that the grassy parts of the Abomasnow had grown and sharpened.

Kyle the Heatmor and Volg were both instructed to strengthen the power of the sunlight and warm things up. They both focused their energy into Sunny Day but found that the intensity of the sun did not change at all. It was still hidden behind a deep layer of clouds pouring snow and hail. The Charizard’s flame on his tail and the fiery tongue of the Heatmor burned low. Kyle blew Spinning Fire and intended it to surround his foe. The flames surrounded one of its feet, which rooted it in place as it seemed nervous to move past it. He then tried again with Inferno which hit the Abomasnow’s leg which lit a bit of the creature on fire. Volg tried next, using his powerful wings and mastery over fire to create a Heat Wave. As the move approached Abomasnow, it melted a large patch of snow around it, and it was distracted while it attempted to conjure up more snow to protect itself. Morgana aimed a ball of Ember at the Abomasnow’s arm. It swatted the flame out on its body and Stomped down on Morgana’s tail before he could get away.

Melissa’s Wildfire jumped into the fray with its fellow Fire-types. Flames sprung from the Cyndaquil’s back, and he let them Erupt and fly the Abomasnow’s way. The flames sizzled as they touched Abomasnow’s icy fur. Angered by the small Pokemon, Abomasnow looked down with its crazed eyes. Wildfire tried an Inferno as Kyle had, lighting up another patch of its fur before it fizzled out. Wildfire finally tried a Fire Blast but was struck with an Ice Punch from Abomasnow. Wildfire struggled to recover from the blow, dragging himself as quickly as he could back to his trainer.

A sharp blast of Air Cut past the current battlers to strike Abomasnow and slice off a small chunk of its fur. It was Big’s Charmander, Hotstuff, who ran past Wildfire, Volg, and Kyle to face the Abomasnow that was practically ten times its height. He blew a Flamethrower which spread over Abomasnow’s foot that was caught by Fire Spin. He looses another blast of fire on the same area. Blaze had a go, puffing up his chest before spitting Flamethrower. The flame danced along the wind and brushed up against Abomasnow who let out a short grumble. The Fire-types acknowledged each other. They had tried several different attacks which should have decimated their opponent, but Mega Abomasnow, apart from a few burned patches, was looking as strong as ever.

Small buds began to sprout all over Abomasnow’s body and fly off at the attackers. They were Seed Bombs and they were headed straight for Hotstuff Blaze and Volg. Rena skidded across the snow to absorb the move with Sap Sipper. Abomasnow then opened its mouth wide and let out Frost Breath which critically hit Kyle and Rena leaving the two shivering cold.
Alice gritted her teeth. She hadn't been fighting with Blaze during the last scrap, and so while she had heard that the fire types had been struggling more when people had been talking, she had hoped things might be different here. Obviously not, and all of them on the field were as aware as their owners that they needed to change tack. Her fighter had almost taken a hit from a ferocious seed bomb, but one of their allies had taken the hit and Alice managed a slight smile of relief. "Thanks! You're a star!" Although not too long after, Rena was clearly a very cold one. Eep.

"Blaze, it's okay, don't worry about it. We've got plenty of other tricks up our sleeve!" She reminded the bird, whose determination felt bolstered by his comrades. Seriousness was broken for a second when the magnificent Skarmory delivered its Z-move, diving hard and dealing major damage on the Abomasnow. Although... It didn't look all that bothered. Worrying. Not to mention, the hail was still pelting them, making it difficult for Alice to fully focus on her whole surroundings. If not for the visor she had brought along again, she probably would have been blinded.

"Oh, shit--- I don't think so. Switch targets, Blaze!" Alice called out as the Snover emerged, burying roots into the soil and undoing what little progress they had made against the big boss. They couldn't afford to drag this out too long, even if Alice made the assumption that everyone had a full team with them. Yesterday had been an icy hell, and part of that was because of the endless enemies and the time it took. If Abomasnow really was the cause of everything, the faster it was dealt with the faster all would be over. "Boost yourself with agility, then go in with bounce and rock slide!"

The Pokemon chirped its affirmation, he and what was left of his clones beginning to rush at one of the many Snover.
